Todd Barry @ToddBarry:

Hmm…does Todd Barry live in Brooklyn? Does it even matter? No! Why? Because this long-acclaimed comedian hosts his podcast at the Bell House, where he reliably brings—right here to Kings County!—some of the funniest people who create some of the funniest moments ever to be cast on a pod. Plus, Barry appeared on Bored to Death, and anyone who was on BtD is automatically, honorarily a Brooklynite. Please get yourself over to the Bell House the next time Barry is there. You won’t regret it.


  1. You forgot Sara Schaefer. She is the fucking greatest. I hope this mistake haunts you for the rest of your yuppie existence.

  2. This list is way too dude-heavy! Are there really so few women in Brooklyn who count as funny enough? The article should be called “The 42 Funniest Men in Brooklyn.” And no, I don’t have a sense of humor about this.

  3. Oh, please. Catie Lazarus is sort of funny, but she’s mostly exhausting with neurotic energy, endlessly complaining about being poor – while wearing designer clothing, traveling around the country, and living on a trust fund, and acting like she’s somehow entitled to earn a living from comedy.

    • So happy Catie Lazarus is on the list! She’s hilarious comedian and writer. Nedster, however, sounds like a bitter, uninformed douche.
